1 Activation Code
When you don’t want to give away the content of your survey to anyone, for example when you enclose sensitive information about your company, you can use the Activation Code to protect your survey. When you choose to use this feature, the Activation Code one needs to open the survey will appear below the title of the feature.
When someone opens your survey they will see this screen first:
Here the respondents have to enter the Activation Code which you’ve sent them.
When using the survey on location, it can be useful to use the survey in Offline mode because the internet connection is not always good on an event or a trade-show. More information about how to set your survey in Offline can be found here. More information about how to add your survey to the home screen of the device can be found here.
When you take a quiz or test, it’s always fun to compare your results with others. This way you can see how well you’ve really done. Also for tests in companies this can be a useful feature. Colleagues can compare results and see where they stand in the company or team, and it’s also visible who has already taken the test and who has yet to do it.
This is how the Leaderboard looks like:
You can choose to either show the Leaderboard in at the start or at the end of the quiz.
4 Publicly Available Reports
Want to share your results with others directly but not your entire account? Use Publicly Available Reports to send a link to the people who you want to share the results with in real-time. They can access the result page and they can download reports, but they can’t see your account or surveys.
To protect your results even more, you can also add an Access Code to the report link. This way only people who know the Access Code will be able to access your results.
This is the page that will be visible:
5 Email notifications
When you want to receive a notification every time the survey was completed, you can turn on Email notifications. Enter your email address, and the email address of colleagues who need to receive the emails as well.
The email contains the questions and answers of the survey/quiz. This is how the email will look like:
When it is important for you where the respondents take the survey, you can turn on Geolocation. When the location on the device is turned on at that moment, you will receive the location in your results and in your Notification Email.
This is the location in your results:

7 Custom Scoring
When you want to add weights to your answers to determine a certain score or Outcome at the end of the survey, you can turn on Custom Scoring. The score won’t be shown to the respondent, but is does end up in the result pages.
This feature is mostly used for assessments that generate different Outcomes (Final Screens) based on the answers of the respondent, or to rate the overall customer/employee satisfaction.
When you turn on Custom Scoring, and you go back to Edit Questions, you’ll see boxes with ‘0‘ in them appeared next to your answers. You can change the ‘0‘ to the number you want to add to every answer. When a respondent chooses an answer, this is the score they are going to get for that question.
Afterwards, you can see the score per respondent in Results by Respondent
8 Quiz Timer
To avoid that respondents will search on the internet for the right answer, you can add a Quiz Timer to your quiz. Turn to switch to Yes to activate the Timer and fill in the amount of seconds the respondents get to complete the quiz. When the time’s up, the quiz saves it answers and closes.
Once you’ve indicated you want a Quiz Timer there are several more options you can determine:
- This is the number of seconds the timer will last before ending the quiz.
- Choose whether or not you want a bar below your quiz counting down the seconds of the timer (see image below)
- When the time is up the quiz section is closed. If you don’t choose a value here the quiz will save and close. Another option is to close the quiz section and skip to another question where you can still ask demographic data or contact data.
9 Quiz score as percentage
The score a respondent obtains is standard shown as whole numbers, e.g.: 3/5. By switching the option Quiz Score as percentage to Yes the score will be shown as a percentage, e.g.: 60%.
10 Idle Timeout
When you put your survey/quiz on an unmanned iPad in a store, you don’t want to leave the survey half open when someone quits in the middle of the survey. The Idle Timeout counts the period of inactivity and returns the survey to the Intro Screen after a period of seconds you choose yourself. You can choose whether or not you want to keep the data of an incomplete survey/quiz by using Save Session.
11 Unique Responses
This feature puts a cookie in the browser in order that respondents can only take the survey once.
Mind that people can still take the survey on a different device if they really want to.
12 Unique Respondent
Unique Respondent make sure your respondents can only take the survey once. The feature checks the respondent ID and matches it with your respondent lists on our server. If a respondent returns for a second try, they will only see the Final screen of your survey.
13 Auto Skip
Auto Skip will automatically slide to the next question once the answer has been selected by the respondent.
Auto Skip is developed for single Text Choice, single Image Choice, Smiley Rating, Star Rating and Emoji Rating Questions. Questions will not automatically skip if Multiple Choice, Additional Text or Group On Screen is enabled. On the last slide, the respondent will need to click Complete to finish the survey/quiz.
To enable Auto Skip go to the Extra Options tab. In the list of features (Settings) you’ll find Auto Skip. Switch the No to Yes.
14 Save on Exit
Go to Extra Options. In the list of Settings you’ll find Save on Exit. This feature makes sure the answers to the survey/quiz are saved in case a respondent closes his or her browser. In other cases the answers will only be saved when the respondents clicks on Complete.
Piping allows you to ask relevant follow-up questions by using previous chosen answers in the questions. E.g.: When someone selects 3 stars in a star rating question then the next question will use this number: ‘Why does our service deserve 3 stars?’.
